Sensing Sensing

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based satellite navigation system that provides location and time information outdoors in all weather conditions, anywhere on the Earth where there is an unobstructed line of sight to six or more GPS satellites.

The GPS offered by Erle Robotics for the PXFmini delivers a GNSS engine for GPS/QZSS and GLONASS combining high sensitivity and low power consumption. It requires the following ports: UART (GPS) and I2C (compass). These ports will power up the device.

NOTE: with the new PXFmini revision, the I2C and UART are included in the same JST-GH(6 pins) connector.

Warning: Only one connector for UART exposed, the other connector of 6 pins correspond to the power input.
